Following a huge increase in pizza related bankruptcies, all Altrincham market traders will be required to wear balaclavas under new consumer transparency laws from 31 October.
Our sensational report last year revealed people were taking out loans to eat at Altrincham Market, but a radical change to the Consumer Credit Act means that all market stall owners will be required to show greater transparency about their prices.
Altrincham Market prices taking the piss
From 31 October all over-priced market stalls will be hit with a new law meaning the owners and their staff will be required to wear balaclavas, so it is clear and obvious customers know they are being robbed before any money is paid.
Our source at the council said, “The message is clear, if you’re going to rob someone at least look the part. We will be issuing fines to any trader who doesn’t comply with the new rules, any persistent offenders run the risk of losing their pitch.
“If your prices are taking the piss, there can be no bending of any new rules, some of us at the council aren’t happy about it either, but none of us are above the law.”
